DIY SOS: The Big Build Veterans' Special

DIY SOS: The Big Build Veterans' Special

This post is now over a year old, so certain aspects of this post may no longer be correct or relevant.

Last week we donated a selection of our Colour Compendium tiles, adhesive and grout to a brand new veterans community that is being built in Manchester and featured on BBC One’s two part programme “DIY SOS: The Big Build Veterans’’ Special’.

The Colour Compendium tiles were used in the transformation of eight existing houses into two larger adapted residential homes for veterans and their families, along with one further home and a specialist veteran support and advice centre.


The aim of the project was to create a veterans’ housing community within the existing community, including an advice centre with space for therapy and counselling, provided by Walking With The Wounded. A further 62 properties on the street will also undergo a facelift with all fronts rendered and new front doors and windows.

This was a great opportunity for us to get involved in such a worthwhile project and give something back to the people who have served our country.

We were so delighted to supply tiles, as well as the grout and adhesive, to provide ex-servicemen with a suitable home that meets their individual requirements following their time in active service!
